Ottawa Waitlisted 2018 JD (English)

Recommended Posts

Is it possible that people who had "decision pending" status have been converted over to this "unnumbered waitlist" status with no real changes? lol

I haven't heard of anyone being rejected off the waitlist, the only way that an individual on the waitlist would not get an offer on the waitlist is if that person would be in a ranking near the bottom (199/200 for instance) and they miss the boat after uOttawa gives out all of their offers toward the first week of classes. But I could be wrong. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I am still on the 2011 wait list

I’m on an unnumbered waitlist and I only checked today from since Monday or so, so I don’t know when it happened.

Did anyone get an email response back acknowledging your acceptance on the wait list after you sent in your wait list acceptance email?

What do you think it means if my uzone status still says under evaluation?

I've sent an email and gotten a response but the message has not disappeared from my account yet. The person I spoke to told me that it would disappear once the numbered list goes up.

Are you saying that if you are a low number in the waitlist (close to 1) you will for sure be accepted? So better stats people are lower and worse stats people are higher on the list?

If you are in the top 100, you have a good shot at an offer. I don't think they place people on the list based on stats alone, it's a subjective ranking according to the admissions committee, but stats may play a role.

I was placed on the unnumbered wait list today!

cgpa: 3.54, L2 3.74

LSAT: 154

Strong LOR's and average EC's.

I will be emailing to tell them that I intend to remain on the wait list! Good luck everyone, praying for a low number as Ottawa is my top choice.

Waitlist - 159/3.6 ... Kind of disappointed as I really wanted to go to Ottawa, but will likely be accepting Windsor as I do not want to leave things to chance

My uozone has been updated to reflect my response to remain on the waitlist. I also received a direct reply from an admissions officer to my original email confirming my interest, which I did not receive last year after being waitlisted and confirming my interest. I did receive a general email last year confirming a change made to my account, but no direct response to the first email like I did this year. Has anyone else received a direct response?

    • I don't think so! Esp. if you have significant jumps. 
    • Not to disagree on what probably isn't important at all, but I think the notion of burn out is often overstated and person-dependent. I spent far too long studying for the LSAT (about ~5 months total), and my progress went from a mid-150s to mid-160s pretty quickly, then a spotty performance with a wide range of low-160s to low-170s. It then took me a solid month of grinding it out daily (~8-10 hrs) to average ~177-178 (over a sample of ~20 PTs). 
    • Thank you for the positivity!! It is nice to know someone was on a similar boat as me. I am dedicated to putting in the time and effort for acing the LSAT. I know it is a very hard test, not something I can master in 3 months, more like a year. I am aware the courses will just help me understand concepts but if I want to master those concepts I have to put in a lot of time practicing. Do you teach classes in Toronto? Once again thanks for the positivity   It helps knowing I wont get it overnight, it will take time and effort to get it. Now I get why America believes the idea that a strong LSAT is a must for law school and luck with the bar. FYI, I read this in a law school blog, its someone's opinion do not bash me for it.  YEs very true, its something costly mentally and financially. For now, I am    
    • Hi everyone,  I've written both the September and November LSAT, and am wondering if it would look bad on my application that I've done the LSAT 3 times. I know most schools just look at your highest score but I'm sure they see that I've done it multiple times. I didn't have much time to study for these last two tests, although hopefully I did better on today's than September. I'll have much longer to study for the January and am hoping that will give me an advantage. Any advice is appreciated!
    • Congratulations!  Are you waiting on any other acceptances?
